A common complaint of OE water pump assembly for BMW 6-cylinder, 3.0L engines is the plastic housings have a tendency to crack at around 50-60,000 miles
Cranbury, N.J.—CRP Automotive has developed a first-to-market water pump assembly kit that services some of the most popular BMW applications from 2007-2010. The Rein Automotive Water Pump Assembly Kit (CRP P/N WPU0505) has been designed to improve upon the OE design and includes an all-aluminum water pump housing, replacing the OE’s plastic version.
“One of the most common complaints of OE water pump assembly for these BMW 6-cylinder, 3.0L engines is that the plastic housings had a tendency to crack at around 50-60,000 miles, due to high vibration and heat,” said Christian Eichstaedt, CRP Automotive’s Director of Product Innovation. “The resulting crack would lead to a loss of coolant that would eventually short the electrical portion of the pump. CRP developed this Rein Water Pump kit with an all-aluminum pump housing to combat this issue, while also replacing the plastic flange and plug with aluminum components to further reinforce the repair. Technicians who choose this kit can be assured that their repair will hold.”
The Rein Water Pump Assembly Kit includes all of the hoses, clamps, bolts, and necessary hardware required to complete a successful service. The kit also includes aluminum mounting screws and any application specific components, ensuring technicians fast, trouble-free installation.
Rein Water Pump Assembly Kits are available for popular BMW models including the 2008-10 135I, 2007-10 335I, 2009-10 335I XDRIVE, and 2007-08 335XI. Application coverage for the kit exceeds 100,000 VIO across the U.S. and Canada.
